The Nominee Interview: What to expect
Updated: Jan 11, 2018
If the candidate has made it to the interview stage of the selection process this is more of the Executive Board getting to know the candidate or honoree and the honoree getting to know the board.
The interview process is friendly, warm, and inviting. The board simply wants to know what you have been up to, a little of what you do and how you do it, how after the awards ceremony the board can help support the honoree in continued success.
“Do you have a design in mind for your blog? Whether you prefer a trendy postcard look or you’re going for a more editorial style blog - there’s a stunning layout for everyone.”
We are excited about honoring ordinary individuals who are courageous enough to go out and do some extraordinary things. The interview process is a treat for the board as we have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the honoree. This is important because during the awards ceremony there is little time for the honoree to mingle with the board and share such information that is gained during the interviews.
Generally the interview takes place during the Executive Board's regularly scheduled call. The candidate calls in the officer running the meeting introduces the candidate and the candidate begins to share a little about him or her self, the interview begins. The call will last about 15 minutes for each candidate. This is the prime opportunity to the candidate to truly highlight what they do, personalize the experience, and ask any questions. For the candidate it's about sharing self and for the board is about getting to know the candidate. It is a beautiful exchange.
